Most frequently, we configure a User Managed Group as a shared inbox/public folder.  Users can forward, cc, or bcc email into the group.  Members (those with access) can receive a daily or volume-based digest of updates, a copy of all new messages, or can view the contents via the web.

I need to know if there is a way to share a group calendar in Google Apps similar to the one in Exchange which is under Public Folders. Is there any other workaround to create a shared calendar in Google Apps where users can have full or read-only permissions?

Yes there is.

You can create a calendar, give it a name, and share access across your users.  You can determine whether or not people can see free/busy or details and if they can make/change appointments.

By the way, is there a way to migrate the group shared calendar in Exchange directly to Google Apps.

The best way would be to export and import.
